We all know how hard it can be to fight distraction, especially when the source of that distraction is the lures of our smartphone.

Forest: Stay focused, be present is an app who’s intent is to keep you engaged in your tasks and away from your phone  by giving you a psychological incentive to not touch your phone. You can plant a seed in Forest. In the next 30 minutes, this seed will gradually grow into a tree. However, if you cannot resist the temptation and leave this app to check Facebook or play a game, your tree will wither away. With this interesting mechanism, the sense of achievement and responsibility will drive our users to stay away from their phone with no pain.

The app features:

  • A self-motivated and interesting method to help you beat phone addiction.
  • Cultivate your personal pattern of time management: make good use of 30-minutes to fully concentrate on your work and finish it effectively.
  • Share your forest with friends.
  • Track your history in a simple and pleasant way.

The app is normally $0.99 but now, thanks to Myappfree.it, the app is free for a limited period.
